Fiat Chrysler Automobiles and General Motors Co. posted sales growth in April, while Ford Motor Co. said its sales declined slightly.

Auto makers in general are expected to post higher sales for the month compared with a year earlier as the industry is poised to bounce back from a bad-weather-ridden slow start to the year, with consumers shrugging off sluggish U.S. economic growth.

Fiat Chrysler, Nissan Motor /quotes/zigman/196473/realtime JP:7201 +1.60% and Toyota Motor /quotes/zigman/199376/delayed/quotes/nls/tm TM +1.10% /quotes/zigman/199438/realtime JP:7203 +2.23% are projected to post the biggest year-over-year sales gains of the major auto manufacturers, according to auto researcher Kelley Blue Book and automotive-information provider Edmunds.com.

Interesting that GM sales were up in light of all the recalls and ignition switch failures that resulted in deaths!

GM sales jump...?!!

So people still want to do business with GM even knowing of GM's decision not to do a recall for the ignition failure, which in some instances resulted in deaths?

I don't want GM to fail, but thought there would be a dip in their sales at the least.

GM - sales gain in the midst of all that bad PR. They must be doing something right.

I'm not sure a single month means much, but we'll see what happens over the year.
